In this week’s session we’ll demonstrate how an existing systems of record application can be enhanced to take advantage of IBM Blockchain’s security and data provenance.
We start with a motor insurance policy application that presents a 3270 green screen interface from CICS, and allows company employees to create new policies, entering vehicle make and model information manually.
Having joined a consortium using Hyperledger Fabric, and Hyperledger Composer, the application is modernized by taking advantage of z/OS Connect EE’s support to pull vehicle information from the Composer REST server. This data is then used when creating a new motor insurance policy, preventing mistakes on input and providing data provenance. A web frontend is presented using CICS Liberty, to deliver a better user experience.
